The United States District Court A044 Proof of Service
Directory of United States District Court Process Servers for Serving District Court Summons and Complaints in all Federal Jurisdictions
United States District Court Lawsuits involving suing someone, or taking them to court for some other legal action, requires that they be notified that the legal action has been initiated, and just what that action is. This is done by providing them with a copy of the official legal documents filed with the court in a specific manner, called "service of process." Service of Process is what we handle and do so by following the appropriate rule of law to assure Proper service of process. After we accomplish service of process upon the defendant we provide a Proof of Service to the Plaintiff's Attorney for filing with the appropriate Federal Court and where the action was initiated.
What is a District Court Proof of Service provided by Process Servers?
The Proof of Service also called an Affidavit of Service must be filed with the United States District Court as evidence that proper service of process was accomplished within the time period specified by law.
District Courts require the approved Proof of Service Form called a A044 Form.
The proof of service form for United States District Court in all Jurisdictions are identical.
The basic information that must be stated on each District Court proof of service include:
- The name of the United States District Court in which the action was filed
- The District Court case name and case number
- The name of the individual to whom the documents were served
- A list of each document served
- The date and time of service
- The manner of service
- The location at which the documents were served
The United States District Court Process Server serving the Summons and Complaint must then sign the proof of service affidavit, under penalty of perjury, that he or she did in fact serve the documents as stated in the proof of service. While every court has standardized proof of service forms available, and they are easy to use, an affidavit of service may be written or typed out, so long as it includes the required information.
Proof of Service forms provided by the United States District Court lack some relevant information. Though the United States District Court Proof does not require, e.g. the actual time the service took place, we provide that information. We find the United States District Court Proof of Service so deficient, we suggest use of the United States District Court A044 Proof of Service AND a standard Process Server provided Proof of Service which provides a wide range of descriptive details and comments when and where applicable. Process Servers' Proof of Service have been used within the Federal Court System for thirty years and have always been well received as they meet the mere minimum requirements of the United States District Court.
